Rat in mi kitchen

https://www.discogs.com/release/868134-UB40-Rat-In-Mi-Kitchen

The third single in a row from the same album. The title is the result of Ali’s exasperated words when asked for inspiration for a new song. He just moved into a new house and it was infested with rodents. That story almost seems too good to be true.

There is coreference to rodent problems in a real kitchen though. Instead the song seems to be about someone that cannot be trusted. Is a rat, sure. But where is the kitchen then?
